LR-South concourse named in honor of college president
The concourse at Pulaski Technical College Little Rock-South has been named Bakke Hall in honor of college president Dr. Dan F. Bakke, who retires this month.
The Pulaski Technical College Board of Trustees announced the naming on Thursday during a "Roast and Toast" dinner honoring Dr. Bakke and the contributions he has made to the college during his 12-year tenure as president.
Several of Dr. Bakke's colleagues acted as "roasters" and shared amusing stories, including Shane Broadway, interim director of the Arkansas Department of Higher Education; Ed Franklin, executive director of the Arkansas Association of Two- Year Colleges; Glen Fenter, president of Mid-South Community College; Chuck Welch, president of Arkansas State University System; and Terry Hartwick, president of the North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce.
A plaque, noting the new name, will be installed inside Little Rock-South later this summer.
